|Coolness: The adjoining shop's selection of produce|
This Earthy (3♥) is at Canonmills bridge, right at the Canonmills intersection and is just down the road from the Botanic Gardens.
The Canonmills Earthy takes up the whole building and includes a shop for packaged as well as fresh food and a cafe/restaurant. They make a good coffee using Matthew Algie - an independant Glasgow-based provider.
The food - both prepared for immediate consumption and bottled/tinned/packaged/fresh - looks great with a wide selection. We sampled some salad and fritata and it was lovely. Also on the extensive menu when we went was game pie, quiches, a good range of imaginative salads, burgers, soups and whatever is freshly available and in season. The sweet/cake options are equally lovely and those with allergies may be catered for with gluten-free, egg-free etc.
The large seating area is usually near full with folks catching up and relaxing over newspapers. A pretty high kid ratio too.
You find yourself a table or bench and then order and pay at the counter after which the friendly staff bring it to your table.
